Subscribers who make one-time payments through DISH’s mydish.com will be able to use bitcoin, the Wall Street Journal notes.
In addition to bitcoin, Dish Network subscribers will still be able to make payments through bank accounts, credit cards and debit cards.
A number of retailers have added bitcoin as a payment option.
